Rain Collector Barrels are used to collect rainwater, and take up one tile space. When it is raining, they will convert the rain into usable water. They are an alternative to the well in gathering water after the water works shut down. The collected rain water will be tainted and unsafe to drink and must be purified by boiling it in a heat source. The lesser collector requires level four Carpentry to build, and the bigger collector requires level seven Carpentry. The smaller collector stores enough water to fill four water bottles, and the large collector stores enough water to fill nine water bottles. If a rain barrel is placed on the tile above a sink in a building, the sink will function normally again, it will automatically filter the tainted water, however the filtering is a bug. One may need to offset the tile location by one to make the sink work.
- Note by --MyTJ (talk) 02:16, 9 October 2015 (BST)MyTJ : I can confirm that the large collector stores 400 units of water, enough for 40 water bottles or 26 and 2/3 kettles. The smaller collector stores 160 units of water. The confirmation is spoiler-ish (noticed by accident, no hack, no mod) so I'm conflicted as how to insert it, so I will link to my small spoiler guide on water management for details on how I can claim to confirm (i.e. meaning it is reproducible) : http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=531969077 . The guide has been updated with rainfall data.
